New service for auction bidders

A NEW service that puts auction vehicles through a 40-point mechanical check prior to sale is now available to fleets.

Vehicles will undergo a full inspection by a team of assessors at Manheim Auctions and the Automobile Association (AA) under the new service, called AA/Manheim Certified.

The two groups claim it will give buyers peace of mind and improve residual values for sellers.

Jack Janikowski, business manager of AA Vehicle Inspections, said: ‘Buying vehicles at auction has traditionally carried an element of risk. By providing independent AA inspections, both vendors and purchasers will benefit from fully assessed vehicles.’

AA/Manheim Certified will cost buyers 1% of the car’s purchase price and vendors will be charged 1% to 2% of the selling price.
